Unhappy Serena Out Of Canadian Open

From The Rogers Cup website:


Serena Williams Withdraws
August 1, 2004
The top seed of the Rogers Cup, American Serena Williams, announced her withdrawal from the Montreal event Sunday. She retired with a left knee injury during Friday's quarter-final at the Acura Classic in California. This is the same knee that required surgery in August of 2003, keeping her out of action for eight months. She hopes to regain her form in time to compete in singles and doubles with her sister Venus at the Olympic Games in Athens.

Not surprising....wise move. If it is hurting, better rest it.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Athletes work the best years ol their life just hoping to represent their country at the Olympics and u make comments like that.

If Serena and Venus do not show up at the Olympics they may aswell never walk on a tennis court again because they will be creating critics not fans.

Will the draw be re-done? Will Jenny get a break in her section now?

The draw has already been redone.


Myskina takes Serena's spot and somewhere in the draw, a lucky loser will take a spot, but not Myskina's.

If she was going to pull out, why did she have to say negative stuff about WTA .
I do want her to come, because I would love to see a Williams playing in Montreal. But I understand that she has to recover. I hope next year she can come too. It's fine if the Americans want to ignore Montreal that's fine, we'll just like Jennifer better than you girls. Hope she wins this time.....finally.....

It's the best thing for her injury right now.

Mary Pierce is now 17 and was moved out of Masha's section. Thankyou Rena for pulling out in time to give Myskina/Mary/Jenn the protection the deserve.
